Enjoy the Seine riverbanks

This summer, the Seine is Queen of the night. You can choose whether to sunbathe at midday, or enjoy a drink under the lanterns at midnight.

Among the places not to be missed, the new Berges de Seine which extend from Pont de l’Alma to the Passerelle Léopold-Sédar-Senghor, are THE summer venue.

Under the Pont Alexandre-III,in a former naval warehouse of the Royal Guard, the contemporary brasserie Faust has a large outdoor terrace, and is open until 2am in the morning.

At Port des Invalides, the sleek barge Flow invites you to enjoy its rooftop terrace, as well as its temporary beach, open from April to October, where you can have lunch, dinner or just a drink, sitting on a sun lounger by the water.

A few steps from here, the barge Rosa Bonheur sur Seine, the little sister of the famous Rosa Bonheur cafe cafe bar at the Park Buttes-Chaumont welcomes you all summer long for a drink, asnack or a meal.

Moored over at the Quai d’ Austerlitz, the Off Paris Seine is the first floating hotel / bar in the capital. It offers an unusual way to experience summer in Paris as you sip a drink or savour a few tapas whilst enjoying the large terrace and its turquoise swimming strip.

Also on the Quai d'Austerlitz, the Cité de la Mode et du Design, with its fluorescent green facade, signed Jakob et MacFarlane, does not go unnoticed on the Quai d'Austerlitz. This space dedicated to the avant-garde has numerous ‘hybrid’ places that are both an outdoor bar, restaurant and club, in summertime. Installed on the rooftop of the ‘Cité’, the Café Oz Rooftop is a restaurant and lounge bar where you can breakfast, dine and have a drink on the terrace with a breathtaking view on the Seine. As for Wanderlust, it has the largest terrace in the capitalwith a surface area of 1,600 m²! More intimate, Communion is a restaurant bar, open for lunch and dinner, which turns into a nightclub at nightfall.

With its concert hall and cultural programme, the Petit Bain floating barge below the Bibliothèque National de France - François-Mitterrand is a popular place. It also has a terrace with bathtubs full of aquatic plants plus a bar - restaurant. A delightful spot to enjoy a quick lunch, relax, and enjoy the view of the Seine!

Opposite the Cité de la Mode et du Design, the Café Barge is a restaurant bar with dancing. Go out for a meal and expend some energy on the dance floor afterwards. On sunny days, ‘The Plage du Batofar’, the famous ephemeral bar restaurant of the Batofar, serves aperitifs and dinner by the water. Relax with a cocktail and tapas under a sun umbrella.

The Péniche Concrete, moored at Quai de la Rapée in the 12th arrondissement, is the perfect place to party on the Seine riverbanks. This temple of electro offers the best in clubbing evenings and after work events, inviting top international DJs to the turntables! The barge has a huge wooden deck for dancing with fabulous views of the river and the Cité de la Mode et du Design.

In the 15th arrondissement, opposite Maison de la Radio, between Pont de Grenelle and Pont Mirabeau, the restaurant La Plage Parisienne has a terrace lounge, perfect for dining or sipping a long drink with electro and jazz playing in the background. The comfortable sofas make the experience all the more relaxing. At the water’s edge at the bottom end of Port de Javel, a few steps from the Parc André-Citroen, The Javelle has a guinguette atmosphere. With multicoloured lightbulbs, large wooden tables and a dance floor, the place has a relaxed atmosphere in the daytime and a festive vibe at night. Several food trucks on site offer world food snacks.
